Coastshare is a not-for-profit organisation established by North Norfolk District Council, Great Yarmouth Borough Council, Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk and Voluntary Norfolk through its social enterprise arm, Charity Backroom to provide a framework that enables not-for-profit organisations to provide services to each other at cost and free of VAT, thereby delivering savings to both providers and recipients.
How does it work?
Any organisation that operates on a not for profit basis can join Coastshare and costs £1. Membership of Coastshare will then enable partners to receive (or provide) services to other Coastshare members at cost and with no VAT. This gives a price guarantee to those organisations “buying” services and means that the services delivered can be free of VAT.
Any member can provide or receive services through Coastshare – it is up to them how much they choose to receive or deliver – there are no contracts or commission or hidden charges. Members can pick and choose what they want and arrange the service and the cost (which will always be VAT free) directly with the provider.
Our members can talk directly to each other through our member’s area.
